Definitely the most amazing thing I have ever done. The crew was amazing, they took excellent care of us and were very fun and professional. Every step of this is planned and executed perfectly. The crew is also very passionate about the animals and are eager to share them with you. The manta rays were beautiful, active, a thrill to see. I would do this tour every single night if I could.

I'm 66 and had my fears about doing this, but I'm glad I did. It was not strenuous, the crew took care to make sure everyone felt comfortable (both on the boat and in the water). They are there with you all the time. It was easy and the manta rays are the most amazing creatures to watch. I didn't want it to end. I would do it again if I had the chance.

The captain and crew were great! They made sure we were all set and helped out if needed. We enjoyed learning about the manta rays from the captain and crew too. Manta rays got super close and they are beautiful animals!! Highly recommend this experience and snorkeling with manta rays on the big island!

The crew was AMAZING on last night 9/18. Mike and his crew. The Manta Rays were absolutely stunning.

We really enjoyed our trip with Captain Charlie. It was educational and a lot of fun! The Manta Rays swim right up to you! 45 minutes in the water was enough for some but my group wishes we could have stayed even longer! Definitely worth it!

This was the most amazing experience I ever had!! The crew was outstanding and helpful. If you can only do one activity on the Big Island make sure it is this event!

One of the most breathtaking experience of my entire life. You MUST try it! Bring a camera and a towel in case there is rain and wind on your way back :)

The tour was amazing! We saw about 8-10 manta rays. Captain Charlie was fun and knowledgeable about the history of the manta rays and the island. The deck hands were very nice and helpful as well. I highly recommend this tour when you are in big island. It’s going to be one of the most memorable experience of your life!

Charlie and his crew worked really hard to make sure we had a great experience. We saw dozens of rays inches from us. It was amazing and I highly recommend this experience if you're on the BI. You can't do it anywhere else!
